jeep looks sick bud, what are your plans for a rear bumper and are you gonna add a stinger/grill hoop on that bumper?
The control arms actually clear it just fine. If it ever becomes a problem I will cut them off. I plan on building a rear tire carrier bumper, and as far as the front bumper, it is done minus mounting some LED lights

since you went with the high clearance option with their arms, you really need to cut those lower mounts off or they wll limit the up-travel of your suspension and poissble damage your arms when you flew it off road....other than that looks great man

Went yesterday afternoon to a friends hunting property that he has some trails cut out on and did a little bit of testing on the WJ. This thing performs fantastically








Hard to tell in the picture but this hole was deep and slippery. I could not get any traction, and after about ten minutes of trying off and on, I overheated the poor thing

Thank you! I decided that I was sick of having an open front end so I have myself a Eaton E-Locker on the way, also I am building double adjustable rear control arms for this thing

Btw, here are some pictures from my last outing. Totally destroyed the gears and carrier in the front, hence the locker.
